Ready for Thanksgiving!!

posted in: North Pole Notes | 0

Hello Boys and Girls!!  I hope you are all ready and excited for Thanksgiving (my 2nd favorite holiday!) … it will be here soon – and THEN Christmas Season will be in full swing!!!  Harvey and I, Mrs. Claus and all the Elves will be enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner that Mrs. Claus and Percy are working on.  I believe this years menu consists of:  Roast turkey, honey glazed baked ham, mashed potatoes and stuffing, noodles and gravy, yams, cream corn, green bean casserole, fresh cranberries, cinnamon apple jam, rolls, home made bread, olives, carrots, radishes, pickles and celery.

Then for dessert we’ll have pumpkin pie (my Favorite!) pecan pie, chocolate pie, french silk pie, apple pie, peach cobbler, more pumpkin pie, more chocolate pie, chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodle cookies, chocolate cookies (with chocolate icing!), springerle cookies (have your mom or grandma tell you about THAT one!) and of course Ice Cream!!  Chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate fudge and vanilla!  Of course they’ll be gallons of hot chocolate and cocoa,  chocolate milk, Chocolate Soldier (ask dad or grandpa about that!) and hot coffee and tea to top things off!

Then we’ll clean up the kitchen and settle down to a big game of ‘Go Fish!’ or may gin rummey or bridge or pitch or dominoes or pictionary!!!  And after that we’ll turn on a football game – and take a nap!!  Harvey will probably take a ‘snap’.  Thats north pole lingo for a ‘short nap’ – a snap!  And it happens in just a snap too!  HO HO HO HO!!!!!

Then after our nap we’ll put up the Christmas tree and decorate it all up!  I’ll put up a picture of it when we’re all done!  Then of course Friday morning we’ll be up at the crack of… well – dark, its stays dark a loooong time this time of year at the north pole!  Ho HO!!  But we’ll be busy working on the toys for all you good girls and boys this Christmas Season!!

Make sure to get your letters in to: and let us know what you’d like for Christmas.  Also, let us know some of the ‘nice’ things you’ve done so far.  We always like to hear your thoughts!!!

I think I hear the ‘Treat of the Day’ alarm!!!  Percy has been making some wonderful things in the magic oven already this season….  gotta go!!   See you all next time…  Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!
